He's back! And he's not alone!
Blog warrior and scourge of right-wing radio, Spocko is back on-line. Spocko's Brain has been resuscitated and is once again the logical command center of the siege against KSFO, the hate radio affiliate of ABC/Disney.
Spocko's story has electrified the blogosphere ever since ABC/Disney obtained a cease & desist order to shut down his original site. The accusation? While alleging that Spocko's use of audio clips from KSFO broadcast violated the company's copyright (although it was readily defensible as “fair use”), the real problem was that Spocko was sharing with KSFO's advertisers the actual content of the programs being supported by their advertising dollars. Once the advertisers heard the venom and bile spewing from KSFO's talk show hosts, they began to pull their spots. Given the contempt that KSFO expresses for its advertisers, it's a wonder that it took so long.
If you're not up to speed on this story, the most efficient way to get a grasp on the whole thing is to listen to an animated compilation of highlights from the KSFO clip files, posted at YouTube by upwithfairuse. Then you'll know just how egregiously KSFO panders to eliminationist extremists. Now go visit Spocko's Brain and join the good guys.
